Thomas Anton Yessis has been capturing the landscapes of Hawaii’s Big Island since 1993.  From the sun kissed Kona-Kohala Coast to the breathtaking valleys and waterfalls of Hamakua to the lush tropical rain forests of Hilo.  Tom captures the drama, beauty and vivid colors and light of Hawaii’s most diverse island.  He paints en plein air as well as in the studio.  His passion for the ocean and outdoors is reflected in each piece.  Tom has earned a BFA in illustration at California State Long Beach University.  Affiliations include the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and the Plein Air Painters of Hawaii where he received “Best of Show” for the annual members juried exhibition in 2009.  He lives with his wife Amie and daughters Hailey & Emily in Kailua-Kona.
